GREEN OPERATIONS

SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTION

For our Feature and U.S. Television direct productions, we implement plans to reduce environmental impacts and model sustainable practices on-screen.

LEGACY PROJECTS

This program started with a commitment to plant one tree for every day of shooting, and it has grown—literally—from there. Today, each direct feature film supports a unique environmental give-back project, typically in its main shooting location.

SUSTAINABLE LUMBER

We express our commitment to biodiversity and the preservation of natural resources by purchasing sustainably sourced or certified plywood whenever possible.

REUSING FOR GREENER PRODUCTIONS

Our films and TV programs currently reuse more than 5,000 sets and share more than 80,000 prop and wardrobe pieces—saving an estimated 1 million pounds of material every year.

ON-SCREEN SUSTAINABILITY

We know entertainment has the power to influence public discourse, so we strive to showcase environmentally responsible choices, behaviors, and messages on small screens and big screens alike.

Green Production Guide

Sony Pictures and the other major studios joined the Producers Guild of America to create a Green Production Guide, which productions can use to help reduce the entertainment industry’s overall environmental impact.
